Valextra Manzoni

Categories:Other Brands

valextra_manzoni-blackCall it an occupational hazard, but whenever possible I give bags I like nicknames, if only to help me remember them and what made it so special in the first place. Clutches from Alexander McQueen are ‘skulls’ to me, and I like referring to Chanel’s boxy acrylic clutches as ‘bricks’. And then there are those bags I give nicknames like ‘fugly’ and ‘hideous’ but it would be too rude to say what they were here.

Walking into Valextra Paragon today, I fell for another bag, and in doing so, she now has her own nickname as well. Officially known as the Valextra Manzoni, it will now and forever be known to me as the ‘washing machine’, mainly to the fact that the whole front panel of the bag swings open when you tug at the handles, and when it’s open, it kinda looks like a front-loading washing machine.

Measuring 22 cm by 30 cm, it’s a typical Valextra offering that encompasses most, if not all, of the Italian brand’s signatures, from its clean lines to its rarefied dignity, focussed only on its make, its finishing and its function. Sporting an additional shoulder sling, you’ll also find a patch pocket on its lush leather-lined interior.

Valextra F/W15 Twist Bag

Categories:Other Brands


Inspired by Tadao Ando’s angular choreography of lights and shadows comes Valextra’s Twist Bag, a new addition for F/W15 that’s all about that asymmetrical twist as the far as the bag’s front leather flap is concerned. Looking like you somehow didn’t close the bag properly (so maybe it won’t work as well for those with an OCD), it’s also an elegant bag, one perfect for the professional as she goes from day to night.

Priced at SGD3300, the 28 cm by 18 cm leather bag comes with 2 roomy compartments, a side patch pocket and a leather sling that’s also adjustable.


And while you’re at Valextra Paragon checking out the Twist Bag (it’s on the same level as Prada but diagonally opposite), you might also want to have a look at theMinaudiere Zip, a leather-clad box clutch that also hides an interesting detail. While it might not be clear from the image above, where it opens you also see a zip embedded into the perspex frame, alluding to Kengo Kuma’s Lotus House that inspired this clutch. Available in 3 colours, you’ll find it in Black and Red besides the one in White that’s shown above.
